What can be said about gut instincts...In Malcolm Gladwell’s fascinating bestseller Blink, he describes many situations where you do your best thinking when you don’t think at all. But he also shows plenty of scenarios where your instincts are way off. What does the research say? How do you know when to trust your gut — and when not to? You can trust your intuition… Sometimes....You make up your mind about someone in 100 milliseconds. Literally. And more often than not, you’re right. In just five minutes you can often evaluate people with approximately 70% accuracy. So today we discuss Toronto and London post covid, and what is likely to happen in social circles and dating pools. And then we look at a specific dating scenario in which a certain someone did not trust their gut instincts, and what came to be...Remember to listen, like and share!

I've been dating a long time! Well over a decade, coming up to 2, so I've had a lot of interesting experiences with men, some good, some bad, all interesting. It is rare that anything really surprises me or leaves me speechless. The other day I was on Tinder, having a stimulating conversation with a man, when he asked for my phone number to switch over to a call. I realized I hadn't asked him much about himself. So I asked about work and school and marriage and kids... and he answered everything...but when we got to the kids part...he was like umm...I don't really know how to tell you this.... but.....Remember to listen, like and share!

Often times when the doc and I record episodes of the podcast, we go off on a tangent and cover a multitude of topics... well not today. Our thoughts on honesty and transparency whilst dating and nothing but that. Blunt honesty, brutal honesty, sugarcoated honesty, early honesty, late honesty.... that's it. That's all we dicuss. Is there a place for lies, little while lies, in a relationship? Tune in and find out!!!Remember to listen, like and share!

Ever since I had my first boyfriend at age 19, I always had a 'meet the parents' outfit. A nice simple dress, usually with a flower pattern, white or cream sweater, straight shiny hair, flawless, natural makeup. Do other females do this as well? Do men ever do this? Is meeting the parents a big thing still? The Doc and I discuss our experiences with meeting the parents of significant others, parents that we remember fondly (and some, not so much), how and when we personally decide to introduce someone to our own parents, parental stigma, expectations, cultural and religious preferences... and the truth about why I have never brought a guy home!Remember to listen, like and share!

Have you seen the show Blackish??? By Kenya Barris??? Is it one of the BEST shows I have seen in an incredibly long time, and it upsets me that it took me this long to discover it. The writing, the activity, the superior casting choices, the topics, the discussions, the emotions, and oh my god, Tracee Ellis Ross, need I say more???So the first part of this episode is me gushing about this groundbreaking show. And then we move onto several deep discussions: longevity in a relationship, mentally healthy mindsets, understanding the difference between intentions not being actions, the importance of kindness, cost benefit analysis, external factors of success, power of pshe and teaching mental health in the classroom, and finally, why we can all benefit from therapy. It's a deep one, but with 2020 coming to an end we need to be discussing mental health now, more than ever. Remember to listen, like and share!

Raise your hand if your first idea of true love came from Disney? For me it was Aladdin, I used to daydream all the time about my prince meeting me at a balcony, the only problem was that I was super afraid of heights. The whole notion of a woman being rescued was so normal in the 80s and 90s and that had a huge impact on the idea of love and what a soulmate was. So we venture into the world of movies, good movies, great movies, romantic movies, even a romantic comedy... and how these models of perfection have molded our personal sense of a soulmate. But do we believe in soul mates? Have we met our soul mate? What defines our concept of love?Remember to listen, like and share!

This podcast usually focused on dating and relationships and marriage...but we rarely talk about divorce, and seeing as the world is in turmoil (and a pandemic) and relationships are falling apart faster than Trump's twitter fingers... I think it's about time we discuss the D word. The doctor and I were raised with out family, and culture's view on divorce and we were taught that it was wrong, unfathomable, and only done by those who given up on marriage and are escaping it. Well we have come a long way since then, so take a listen to our pod today and let us know your thoughts about divorce. Has your reasoning and justification of it changed over time? Do you have parents who are divorced? Do you wish your parents were divorced? Would you ever get a divorce? Can you see the positives and negatives of such a large decision? The discussion continues...Remember to listen, like and share! Send your comments, feedback and love to us on Instagram @EncyclopediaOfDating
A very famous song goes by, "Let's get physical, physical!" And it's possible that this might stir up some memories for you, perhaps of a special time, or a special someone. But have you ever stopped to think about the chemical reactions your body undergoes during these intense moments of pleasure and lust. Unlikely. There are more than 40 neurotransmitters in the human nervous system; some of the most important are acetylcholine, norepinephrine, dopamine, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), glutamate, serotonin, and histamine. So today we try to better understand our chemical makeups and what happens when we feel a certain way, and why we can be, oh so very addicted, to these neurotransmitters.

If we really thought about it, would we actually want someone perfect? The answer is going to be no because none of us are perfect. We are all flawed beings, a sum of our genes and hormones and parents and life experiences and socialization. So why are we so set on this idea of a perfect partner, that's not what we really want.... is it? The Doc and I break down some of the qualities that matter the most to us, and what we are hoping to find in an ideal mate. Tune in and see if you agree or disagree with our top choices!Remember to listen, like and share! Send your comments, feedback and love to us on Instagram @EncyclopediaOfDating
Akon once famously sang, "Now they done stop me and I get locked up...they won't me out". But what about those who have been let out. If a judge and the justice system deem them to be eligible for parole or early release and get a second shot at life, don't they also deserve love. Some people would agree with it, some would not, and some would say it's circumstantial. So when two females from different walks of life, are coming across men who have been convicted of crimes, how do we feel about meeting them, dating them, and having a relationship with them. Hey, men in prison can be swiping on tinder too, so let's get a discussion going on this. Would you date someone who had spent time in prison? Would the length of the sentence be a determining factor? What about the crime itself? How about if they had been rehabilitated, seeked therapy and made changes in their personal life? Or, is it an immediate no? Does a prison sentence also come with you being punished in love?Remember to listen, like and share!

So cheating is a thing, it happens, it hurts, it burns, and unlike other things that burn, there is no magic pill that can cure it. Ok so what if your partner does cheat, could you get over it? What if it was physical? What if it was emotional? What do you even define as cheating??? Did it happen in the past, was it once or twice, did you catch them, did they tell you, did you suspect it? There are definitely more questions than answers. Have we cheated? Have we been cheated on? The doc and I look at our own opinions of flirting, cheating, and the crazy world of dating, relationships, forgiveness, or at least trying to! Remember to listen, like and share!

Well, what started as an episode discussing social media norms with relationships, posting relationship statuses, sharing couples pics, and our experiences with each..... eventually became a very heated discussion about tinder etiquette. Granted, a lot of men just swipe right on every female (or male) they come across, but surely a person can take the time to upload some decent pics? Write a decent blurb? Ensure the pictures are actually of a human being?What are your thoughts on uploading profiles to tinder and other online dating platforms?Remember to listen, like and share!

A lot changes when a person turns 30. Their lifestyles, their tastes, their body, their social norms... and if you are single in your 30s, then your dating life will also take a drastic change. One difference that not a lot of people talk about, is meeting potential partners who are already parents. Whether you want to date someone with children or not, it is a reality of being in your 30s, and honestly speaking, difficult to completely avoid. People are more likely to have children, be divorced, and have someone significant in their life due to a previous relationship. The Doc and I have similar outlooks and preferences when it comes to this topic, so hear our take on getting with a Baby daddy (or baby momma)!Remember to listen, like and share!

Real love, I'm serching for that real love! Notice, I said real and not reel. In a world bombarded with social media I often feel that we are living a hazy line between real and reel. With the newfound approach to dating online, I too, have fallen prey to a portrayal of myself in my reelest form. And after years of posing and perfecting the selfie, I often find myself contemplating the image I have created. Brand awareness aside, when people see your reel version do they even consier or remember the real person behind the image? And what impacts does that have on dating, especially online dating, whereupon each swipe is based on that perfectly curated reel image. Real Vs Reel. Now on the podcast.

A collage of topics on today's episode... starting with my magical date at the Shard, followed by a horrific date and nightmares that may or may not follow. We discuss the impact of horror movies, appreciating JLO, movie theaters during Covid, Tenet, John David Washington, leaving a person better than you met them, failing communication skills, Twitter suicide, screen time and regulating emotions, phone addiction, protesting against protestors, the dark times of privilege, and the Doc and I hoping that one day we are able to do a pod together in person!Remember to listen, like and share!

A good story can be told via song, a great story can be written into a book, but an epic saga can only be in the form of a trilogy. If you have been following the podcast (and I hope that you have been listening in chronological order), then you know all about Batman! If you haven't listened in order, I would highly suggest hearing episodes 46 and then 52 so you know the background of this story. As upsetting as the ending was, it was another lesson in my long line of dating history, and hopefully a lesson that sticks. Batman is done, I'm leaving Gotham, and I think I might need to never date super heroes again. Their enemies (especially internal) are not demons I can compete against!Remember to listen, like and share! Send your comments, feedback and love to us on Instagram @EncyclopediaOfDating
The doc and I discuss all the things going on in our covid world. From London lockdown being eased up, the different state of things in the States. We also have a detailed look at masks and the different conspiracy theories around this... which leads up to September 11 and the moon landing...And then the heavy stuff!!! Dealing with MEN on the internet!!! As the podcast gets bigger and more popular, there is an influx of men who think it is ok to leave dirty messages, send dirty pictures, video call, and harrass you non stop. I have been called every name in the book, been attacked online and even been threatened. Slut shaming is one thing... grown men wanting to hurt you is another. Listen to our very detailed discussions about what being a (sexually liberated) woman online really feels like! We have some specific examples, messages, phone calls, and of course a date story!Remember to listen, like and share! Send your comments, feedback and love to us on Instagram @EncyclopediaOfDating
